Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
This steel toe/aluminum heel crampon is fantastic for light/fast climbing and ski alpinism. Not the daily driver and not something to be stomping around on rocks with but if you will be primarily on snow and may occasionally encounter some ice, these are perfect. Used them for climbing Liberty Ridge on Tahoma and they were perfect. Light weight and pack up small but provide the purchase when you want it. Pair really well with the Gully Ice Tools! Best when used with the clip toe attachment rather than the strap. Good for climbing easy ice and very easy mixed (for me). I've had no issues with wear on the dyneema cord. I've banged it around and used it a bunch and it seems to be totally fine. I do inspect it fairly regularly and have a spare cord in my pack.
